The Most Advanced Lameness Measurement System Available
The Equinosis Q with Lameness Locator biomechanical care platform is a real-time, handheld, field-based system that enables veterinarians to objectively measure lameness with wireless sensors that track horse movement accurately to less than 1 millimeter.
Evolving from the development of motion analysis algorithms at the University of Missouri using a high-speed camera and treadmill-based system, it is the gold standard for field-based measurement of lameness. Similar to a microscope or telescope, veterinarians can use the Equinosis Q’s inertial sensors to quantify equine lameness and measure motion with superior resolution.
Translational research adapted the analysis to be used as a convenient, robust, miniaturized system in the field. Data is transmitted wirelessly in real time as the horse is trotted, and the comprehensive lameness assessment is immediately available to the practitioner.
Why the Equinosis Q?
The Equinosis Q with Lameness Locator® provides the veterinarian with an objective assessment of a horse’s movement. Subtle changes in symmetry of movement can be missed due to the limited temporal resolution of the human eye.
Multiple limb or compensatory lameness can further complicate what is observed. Equinosis Q inertial sensors sample 10x faster than the human eye, allowing for detection of very subtle differences in symmetry between the right and left halves of stride.
Objective quantification of improvement can be obtained while blocking horses with diagnostic analgesia, enabling the veterinarian to better assess whether the lameness has been localized. Sequential evaluations also provide objective information on response to therapies, or improvement of an injury during a rehabilitation process.
In the Clinic or Field
Over 75 universities around the globe, including 90% of all accredited North American veterinary medical colleges, are training the next generation of doctors with Equinosis technology.
Equinosis Q wireless sensors compute precise measurements the human eye can’t see, tracking head and torso movement accurately to less than one millimeter at 100 meters.
The “Q” is the result of 20 years of gait analysis research performed by equine veterinarians and led by University of Missouri Lameness Program Director Dr. Kevin Keegan.
Fast & Easy
Microelectronic sensors measure precisely how the horse moves with wireless, real-time data collection. Instrumentation is quick, easy and completely non-invasive.
